Part of the Carrier concept

Carrier is a disc cultivator used for high speed primary tillage and seedbed preparation. The wide range of front tools, discs and packers enables Carrier to handle the versatile challenges of modern farming – from ultra-shallow cultivation to a deeper incorporation. The versatility it brings to the farm saves passes, decreases machine cost per hectare and provides the best start possible for the coming crop.

Väderstad Discs allowing for increased working depth

Discs allowing for increased working depth

Carrier XL can be fitted with either 510mm or 610mm TrueCut discs. In comparison, the 510mm disc increases the space around the disc which allows for a higher throughflow. The 610mm on the other hand, enables greater working depth, which is a benefit when incorporating large amounts of crop residues, such as harvested maize stubble

Intensive shallow tillage

CrossCutter Disc performs outstanding in grain stubble and in cover crops, while also enabling great advantages on cultivated land. Because of its disc shape and high-quality Swedish steel, CrossCutter Disc provides full cultivation and intensive mixing at shallow working depth. This means that an extensive stale seedbed is created over the entire field.

Väderstad MultiSet offers versatility

MultiSet offers versatility

The adjustable MultiSet disc hubs allow the disc angle to be set to one of three positions between 11 and 17 degrees. This enables the disc aggressiveness to be adjusted to fit different working depths. 

Thereby a perfect slicing can be achieved during shallow cultivation, and a good penetration can be ensured at a greater working depth.

Easy adjustment

The maximum working depth is set on the machine, while operational depth settings are carried out hydraulically from the cab. To ensure optimal slicing and uniform cultivation, the front row of discs can be adjusted in the lateral direction with the help of rigging screws.

Support on packer wheels

Support on packer or wheels

Carrier XL 425-725 design allows for the transport wheels to be set down in the field, which makes the disc cultivator very manoeuvrable. 

On headlands, the machine can be turned on either the packer or the wheels. The wheels can be lowered in damp areas or when shallower cultivation is required. By raising up the frame it is easy to back into corners, allowing the whole field to be cultivated.

Adjustable wing pressure on wider models

Adjustable wing pressure on wider models

To be able to match the working results to the conditions in the field, Carrier XL 625-725 is equipped with hydraulically adjustable wing pressure.

This ensures that the machine gives the same cultivation effect across the entire working width.

Väderstad Straw harrow compensates for poor straw distribution

Straw harrow compensates for poor straw distribution

Large combines tend to have a poor straw distribution, leading to an uneven emergence of the next crop. Equipped with the straw harrow Carrier not only cuts, but also distributes straw in the same pass. Well distributed straw is crucial to provide the following crop with the same conditions over the entire field.

CrossCutter Knife adds versatility

By equipping Carrier XL 425-725 with the intensive knife roller CrossCutter Knife, crop residues can be cut in two directions.

Weeds and small-seeded crops, such as oilseed rape, profit from an improved germination. A benefit after grain or sunflowers is the intensified chopping of the straw, giving a faster decomposition. Additionally, cover crops can be crushed and incorporated cost efficiently.
